I'm really liking Blogger. There is a lot of customization, things are reasonably easy to do. I guess I am an incorrigible geek. I've been playing with the layout, fonts, colors, etc. Clearly I'm not gifted when it comes to aesthetic choices, but I'm liking the overall look of the blog. Finally figured out how to use some simple CSS to make the widgets on the side have a background so that the text is legible over the fancy background.
I will probably be tinkering with the blog as I go along, so don't be surprised if things look radically different from day to day...or maybe just some subtle changes here and there. You can never tell.
